Happy New Year! It’s a new decade and along with the typical new year’s resolutions comes a new one that almost everyone across the world is talking about. That is of course “be more eco-friendly”.
2019 was the year that the world suddenly woke up and realised that our mass plastic disposable consumption simply cannot continue. With single use plastics filling the ocean, damaging wildlife, ecosystems and generating harmful gases during production, the public are now looking for more eco-friendly alternatives. But how can we combine our January health-kick with being more eco-friendly in 2020? The answer may be within your salads and smoothies.
Along with the aim to become healthy in January, many choose more convenient options such as on-the-go salads and smoothies. We are so busy rushing around with work and family life, that of course in order to remain healthy, the majority of people are going to choose the easier option. However these habits could actually be increasing your plastic consumption. Luckily we have a range of eco-friendly smoothie and salad bowls that will help you stay on track with your meal plan, allow you to meal prep without much fuss and dispose of your containers without the guilt. Take a look at these excellent options below.
PLA Smoothie Cup Clear
We all enjoy a smoothie and for those who want to grab one just as they run out of the door in the morning, this PLA Smoothie Cup is compostable and so convenient. Unlike containers that you may grab at a smoothie bar, this PLA cup can be recycled and is compostable under industrial composting conditions. Enjoying your smoothie this way will also help you save money, making other resolutions that you may have set for 2020 just that little more obtainable.
Large Window Salad Box
Don’t place your salad in a plastic container. This kraft board salad box is ideal for cold snacks and meals and is completely compostable. The window placed in the lid is made from PLA so can be easily composted. This option is perfect for restaurants as well, allowing customers to enjoy a salad without the worry of disposing of a plastic container. Are you worried about salad dressing leaking through the box? No need. The box features a water based lining which is greaseproof so you can enjoy your salad without any worries.
